Really? Is that possible? Aren't there some things that you should worry about? Anxiety can be such a common part of our lives that we would feel lost without it. We learn to lean on feelings of anxiety, like a really bad best friend. Perhaps, feeling anxious gives us a feeling of control. But, left unchecked, anxiety will ruin us.
God does not want our minds filled with anxiety. Rather, he desires his joy to fill us. He tells us, "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" Philippians 4:4 In other words, we can actually rejoice. This is not dependent on a good mood. It is dependent on obedience.
After rejoicing, we are instructed to tell God about our problem or need. We are to do this "with thanksgiving." The thankful heart is the believing heart. This person will receive the peace that God promises. Take a few moments to READ, PRAY, WORSHIP and GIVE, as you seek to be transformed by God's Word.
